More About the Author

The English Standard Version (ESV) Bible is an essentially literal Bible translation that combines word-for-word accuracy with literary excellence, beauty, and depth of meaning.

First published in 2001, the ESV Bible has become trusted by millions of Christian leaders, pastors, and individuals in every part of the world.

The ESV Bible carries forward the trusted legacy of the Bible in English--the legacy established first in the Tyndale New Testament (1526) and the KJV Bible (1611). With this legacy as the foundation, the ESV Bible (2001) reflects the beauty and majesty of the original languages, first captured centuries ago by these early Bible translations.

But the ESV also provides the most recent evangelical Christian Bible scholarship and enduring readability for today. The ESV translation team was built on the trusted foundation of over 100 evangelical Christian scholars and pastors worldwide, committed to the truth, authority, and application of the Bible to all of life.

Format: Hardcover
I received a notification from Crossway Books last week that they had just released their latest ESV Bible and that it was Students Study Bible version. I immediately ordered one since I work with some college students and young adults just starting their careers (I use to be the Youth Pastor at our church).

I am very pleased with this new version of the ESV Study Bible. In addition to the regular study notes and topics that are included, along with the Outlines and Introductions to each book of the Bible there are several new features. In the Student Study Bible they have included 120 new Bible character profiles. These profiles are short (just a few paragraphs each) but they are well done and help the student get a thumbnail sketch of important characters of the Bible.

There are also 900 New 'Did You Know" facts that are listed throughout the Bible. An example from page 34 is the "Did you Know" fact about "Cherubim (Genesis 3:24) are angels who guard holy places. They appear in various places in the Bible. 'Cherubim' is the Hebrew plural form of 'cherub'." These little facts help a student to come to an understand about a term that they might not be familiar with if they are new to Bible reading.

Also included in the Bible are the plan of salvation and many topics that will help a new Christian navigate their way to a better understanding of the Bible. The color maps are well done and give just the right information when needed to go along with stories that the student is reading.

Then there are the regular notes (commentary) at the bottom of each page that give the students information regarding the text that they are reading.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I was completely blown away be the excellent material in the book. "Student" in the title is a superfluous repetition of the word "Study" and gave the absolutely wrong impression that it was going to be a dumbed down version of the regular ESV Study Bible. It gives a lot more meat up front. Footnotes for OCDs are reduced to a microscopic font size: I like reading the enlightening commentary without having to look at more subtitles, like some boring academic thesis.

Admire the quality of the pages, completely legible print, binding and high quality of manufacture and layout, and surprise - it is made in the USA. The print is much darker and pleasant to read than more expensive outsourced bibles. Much has been said about the green highlighted "Did you know" questions. They are scattered all over this bible, and generously in the Old Testament, so it is hard to fall asleep on the OT. Now I "Know" how large Israel was during the time of King Solomon, and I was surprised Israel covered a lot of countries now at loggerheads with modern day Israel.

There are profiles of people in yellow highlighted boxes, notes in blue, lists in mauve, maps and illustrations make this bible a tasteful technicolor affair. I bought this bible for the 900 "Did you know" (which would itself have merited the purchase) but I got a lot more with this "Student" bible than with my plethora of other ESV study bibles. This unfortunately titled product could actually supersede all other ESV study bibles in popularity in future. No adult prefers carrying a bible titled "Student", which implies incompleteness and lower status. It is one thing to be meek, but quite another to flaunt your meekness.

This bible should be re-titled "Essential" Study Bible, or "Basic" Study Bible.

I have been really looking forward to doing this review. Crossway has been kind enough to provide me with a review copy (as will be stated below), and I now see why they were so excited about this release.

Filled with 12,000 study notes, introductions and timelines in each book of the Bible, 15 topic based articles, almost 900 new "did you know" facts, and 120 new Bible character profiles, we as readers are empowered to grasp the text and wrestle with themes like never before.

Going into it, I knew I would be provided some resources and context, but I didn't realize the extent of it all until I started diving into studies on particular texts. The verse cross-references, facts, and study notes truly help develop the text and the themes/contexts already being developed.

Another thing that I really enjoyed was that, though many theological concepts and topics are addressed, it never felt like I was given information that was so far over my head I would never understand it. The student study bible not only provides us the resources, but it's provided in a way that easy to hold onto, and relevant to understand.

One last area of discussion I wanted to point out is the topic-based articles towards the end of the book. These address important Christian Doctrines to know and understand, and even range in topic from Who is God, to How to Apply the Bible in Everyday Life.

You will truly feel equipped to dive into the Word of God like never before, and the automatic access to is definitely a useful supplement to our study. The Bible I received absolutely did not disappoint and now I see what the hype is all about.
